Over twenty years ago, Konstantinos Karydas established Karydas Estate in Ano Gastra, one of the most well-known grape-growing regions of Naoussa. Their vineyards consists of only six acres of Xinomavro vines, planted on the hill of Gastra in sandy, clay and limestone soils, noted for their good drainage. In 1994, he built his winery in the middle of the vineyard and was soon joined by his son Petros, who helped to release the estate's first vintage.

Domaine Karydas is a traditional Xinomavro matured for eighteen to twenty months in French oak barrels, then spends another four to five months in the bottle before the vintage is released. Both the nose and palate are remarkably powerful, showing concentrated notes of blackberry, plum, spice and woodsmoke, with hints of roast coffee and earth adding complexity. Firm tannins and bold acidity merge with luscious dark fruit on the long finish.
